Searching through a piece of text doesn’t sound like a task one would need a lot of fancy NLP technology for, but we recently had a case where this was actually necessary:

One of our customers asked us if we could help them with searching for specific terms in their documents. Their task was to deal with contracts and requirements, where missing even a small detail can potentially cost millions down the line. Additionally, these documents are usually very long, sometimes several thousands of pages. So if one where to simply Ctrl + F for a specific term one might get hundreds and hundreds of results, most of which irrelevant.
